Wow that's awesome hollylovesbeau :) What a wonderful mom you have! She knew you were passionate about it and encouraged you to follow it! Sweet!!
That's also awesome Alli.. surprise horse lessons are the best!
Mine is kind of weird.. my best friend (when I was 7 going on 8) used to brag about how she rode horses and so I got jealous because she'd never let me come watch her.. so I begged for riding lessons for nearly an entire year and on my 8th birthday I got on this little connemara grey pony
It was fun and I've loooved it since haha
